i almost bought a GA GT this summer. brand new 03 with the 25th aniversary trim package, and that new metalic orange colour, we had a sweet deal on at our dealership for employee's on new vehicles, was so close to buying it, but then i realized that i'd have to give tossing parts on the bird for a few years... bought a 92 subaru winter beater instead for a Daily driver. LOL....

plus the thought of the crapola N body brake system... ughghghgg.. that and AUTO... meh.... i'll wait to see what GM has to offer me again in the next year or two.. :wink:

Those Grand Am GT's are pretty sweet. I like the RAM-AIR induction and 3400 motor. I just wish I could get one in a stick... :x

haha not used to the way the 3400 only has huge amounts of torque at a certain RPM range u mean ? :p

cuz my "little" 3.1 aka 3.2 has torque over a bigger rpm range ;)

but i still like the 3400

what do you mean, "crappy N-body brakes"... I never had a problem with them
Constant NON STOP Brake Rotor Pulsation.....

front pads if not replaced with the expensive A/C delco Ceramics, the regular replacement pads do nothing but squeal.

Front Brake Calipers that always "crunch" for somereason alot of them, you press the brake and you can hear the brake caliper making noises, (my friend Jordie's car is exactly like this)

ABS brake problems....

Do i need to go on? or do you not believe a GM technician that works day in and day out on this JUNK???!

complete JUNK!

did you know the front brakes are made by PBR?? they're an Australia Brake company,

Well that explains why my 2 month old, 1000km, set of brakes are squeling non stop :evil:

That and it feels like there's only 1 spots on the damn rotor that the pad is grabbing :evil:

Is there any way to fix the problem so it stops doing that?

Some of us aren't blessed with money or the skill/know-how to do a engine swap.
Actually, I think you don't know enough background info here. John wasn't making fun of him for only having a 3.1. z24dawg has removed his 3.1 and completely rebuilt it with a 3x00 upper end, which is a lot more work than just removing a 3.1 and dropping in a fully assembled 3400...
